Donuts is always the number one favorite of all time. It can be fried or baked whichever you like yours to be eaten. For me, i like it fried the traditional way, of course. I was craving donuts yesterday and can't help myself thinking of making however i ran out of yeast, bummer! Thank goodness sis in-law is to the rescue she just live 2 houses away so i asked her to came over and will do the donuts for snacks or dessert for dinner.

So to make the story short, i was able to make the kind of donuts I've miss for quite a while now. It is the peanut butter filled one. I used to recall back in my hometown a lady sells them and it was the yummiest donuts I've ever ate! It was filled with creamy peanut butter and sprinkled sugar! I guess i have the right to indulged myself because i never really have any sweets craving since the year started. I love it just the way i want for donuts! Plus the housemates enjoyed theirs after we ate dinner!

Here is my donuts recipe and i guarantee you it is really good! A lil some once in a while wouldn't harm.

2 cups flour
1 cup bread flour
1 cup evaporated milk
1 sachet of rapid yeast (dissolved it with the milk and 1 tbsp white sugar)
3 tbsp white sugar
1 a/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3 tbsp room temperature butter
cooking oil

Microwave the 1 cup milk for 55 minutes, dissolved the yeast and tbsp sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes or bubble starts rising. In a mixing bowl, combined flours, sugar and salt set aside. Melt the butter for 5 sec in the microwave, then pour it to the mixing bowl mixture along with the egg and milk mixture. Mix them all together until well combined. In a clean counter top sprinkle flour and start kneading the dough until smooth and form a ball. Bring back to the mixing bowl let it rise for an hour until dough double the  size. Cover with dumped paper towel or cloth.

For the peanut butter sauce filling:

1/4 cup heavy whip cream
2 egg yolks
4 tbsp white sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
half tsp vanilla extract
3-4 tbsp peanut butter (with chunky peanuts)

  • Combined all the ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes until mixture thickened. Stir it gradually until cooked. Set aside.
After an hour, heat frying pan. Place dough on the floured top, using a rolling pin approximately 1 and half inch thick. Starts forming circles until finish. Then fry to the heated cooking oil until brown. Drip excess oil and let it cool for 5 minutes. Then start filling the donuts with the sauce. Using icing decorator or just  a Ziploc disposable bag. Cut about a half inch in the tip of the Ziploc bag. Lastly, dash them with the confectioner sugar for extra look. Wink!

Enjoy Cooking.
